Transport to School



Student Conduct


Students should wear full uniform for the whole of the journey to and from school.  Students are reminded that their behaviour on the journey gives a message to the general public about the standards and values of the school.  Courteous and safe behaviour is therefore insisted on at all times.


By Bus and Train


For students living in Kent, any questions about transport arrangements should be directed to the Transport Team at Kent County Council Public Transport – telephone 03000 41 84 84 or by visiting their website


For students living in East Sussex any questions about transport arrangements should be directed to 01273 335088.


Applications for assistance should be made in the summer term of Year 6. Students with passes travelling to school on contract services must ensure they know the route and the drop-off/pick-up points before the start of the school year. All other students travelling to and from school by public transport will need to check timetables and routes before the start of the school year. Parents are responsible for ensuring that their child catches a service that gets them to school by 8.40am latest for an 8.45am start.


For those students living in Kent the KCC Travel Saver provides young people with unlimited access to the bus network of Kent on weekdays (Monday – Friday) 6.00 am – 7.00 pm, September to July 31.  


  • The standard fee for a KCC Travel Saver will be £350 and a £10 admin fee if paying by instalments

  • Children in receipt of Free School Meals will pay £100

  • A Young Carer or a Young Person in Care or a Care Leaver will not pay any fee

  • Applications must be made by 14 July to ensure bus pass is ready for collection on the first day of term

By Car


Parking: Parents MUST NOT drive onto the school premises or turn in the entrance to routinely drop off or collect students. 


Having cars moving in the small area of the school’s upper car park when it is flooded with pedestrians twice daily is an extreme hazard. The entrance from the road is also very narrow which is why we operate a one-way system for staff cars arriving to avoid potential collisions at the entrance. Please do not drop off at the entrance to school either as students then walk in a narrow road with no footpath and into school via a busy vehicle entrance.


The following alternative drop off points can be used:


  • Yew Tree Road car park.
  • Sports Centre car park off St John’s Road (students can then access the school via the footpath and rear pedestrian gate).
  • Further up Reynolds Lane so your child can walk down the footpath towards the school.


Please do not park in Majestic Wine’s car park, nor at the Cross Keys.


The only times parents and carers should drive into the school is to collect students who become unwell during the school day, for pre-arranged meetings with school staff, if the student has special permission for medical/other reasons or to collect students after 4pm. A small number of students are dropped off in the car park for medical reasons which we are aware of.


By Foot


The school can be accessed either via the public footpath along Reynolds Lane, or by using the public footpath from St John’s Road. Students should not access the school through the entrance to Tunbridge Wells Grammar School for Boys on St John’s Road.

16-25 Student Railcard


Given the current cost of living crisis, Trainline have put together a guide to the 16-25 Railcard (also known as the Young Persons Railcard) to help students save money on travel around the UK. Please click here for more information.

Our Values

Ambition Rooted firmly in Catholic teachings, we aim to nurture and guide our students to fulfil their God-given potential so they may achieve success.

Leadership We strive to be a community of servant leaders, where individuals gain a clear sense of self and purpose, knowing their values and using these to guide how they enrich the community in which they belong.

Integrity We teach our students to value honesty and have strong moral principles, using their discernment to govern their actions and take responsibility for their choices.

Vigour Inspired by the life of St Gregory, we empower our students to work with vigour, so they approach all activities and opportunities with effort, energy and enthusiasm.

Empathy We aim for our students to understand and value the feelings of others and for them to know they are loved and celebrated irrespective of their differences.
